‘Irwin M&E Limited … Fit for Business!’
As part of Irwin M&E Limited’ s employee engagement and improvement activities; Chest Heart and Stroke assessments were provided for all staff on the 31st May and 1st June 2012.
A recent Health and Wellbeing survey carried out in March 2012 showed areas of improvement for the employees. Two of the issues that they requested support on was Life style and physical health issues.
In partnership with the Northern Ireland Chest Heart and Stroke Charity, Irwin M&E Limited arranged Cardiac Risk Factor Assessments for everyone. This assessment looked at High Cholesterol, Blood Pressure, Lipid profile and general lifestyle.
From this assessment, employees are now more aware of the risks and prevention methods associated with coronary heart disease and strokes. Advice and information regarding dietary changes, smoking, alcohol consumption and exercise were given to help improve employee Health and Wellbeing.
The assessment was very successful and gave us the opportunity to help provide support and promote Health and Wellbeing improvements for all staff and further our commitment to employee engagement.
